ITV reportedly selling LFC stake


aka Dus

Recommended Posts

I dunno, bit confused (and saw the article in a media stories review, so I didn't buy the piece of 5hite paper) but the Mail on Sunday are running a story on page 6 that "ITV is understood to be finally selling its stakes in Arsenal and Liverpool football clubs."

 

Anyone read this?

 

For some reason I thought ITV had already sold that stake... no?

I thought that it was Granada that had a 10% stake... There was talk of them selling it previously and Morgan buying the share in order to get on the board but he couldn't guarantee getting a seat even with a 14%-15% share

They own 9.75% of the club and are major partners in .tv but without a controlling interest which the club retains.

 

If ITV were to put a big bid in for one of the new Premiership packages as ordered by the EU, they would have to remove all points of conflicting interest first.

Surely this would apply to ManU and Sky?

Don't they own a percentage of them? Or at least I think they did.

Not sure what % of .tv they own but they have complete rights to sell our merchandise (not Reebok) on - line. Therefore you won't see our official gear on-line except on the official site. I am looking to work with them to help Australians get stuff here cheaper, but I am still in discussions with the club.

Sold it to the Glazers

 

Sold them well before that I think. They also held shares in a couple of other clubs at one stage, Leeds being one. They still part own MUTV and Chelsea TV.

All the same, whoever buys it might give clear hints if anyone is seriously interested in the club.

 

Anyone looking for a majority stake will have to deal with Moores obviously but it might still be relevant.

 

Their stake in .tv should go to someone with a global market reach.
